The Seychelles

Why Choose The Seychelles?

The Seychelles comprises 115 islands scattered across the remote tranquillity of the vast western Indian Ocean off the east coast of Africa. Surrounded by clear warm seas and blessed with year-round sunshine where both day and night temperatures range between 28 to 34C, The Seychelles islands are the best kept secret for those wanting a holiday that is a little bit special.

The islands constitute a mix of towering granite peaks, lush tropical forests, isolated golden sand bars and unexplored atolls fringed by teeming coral reefs. The Seychelles offers a holiday with unique and un-touched natural surroundings, a holiday where you can relax, re-charge the batteries and return home feeling revived and refreshed.


The Seychelles Highlights

  • Denis Island - this privately owned flat coral island spanning about two kilometres in diameter is the perfect location for true escapism.  Enjoy fishing, windsurfing, diving, sailing and kayaking or just take time to relax on the warm sand under a palm tree and enjoy the tranquillity of this beautiful island.
  • Mahé Island – This is the largest island in Seychelles and home to the capital city, Victoria. It's lush and mountainous with towering granite peaks and dense cloudforest. Rare endemic plants found nowhere else in the world adorn Mahé’s mist forests and its coastline is strung with sweeping sandy beaches and picture-perfect coves. 
  • Praslin – This is the second largest island in Seychelles home to fantastic beaches and intimate hotels and resorts. It has a more laid-back vibe than nearby Mahé and is blessed with lush forest and a beautiful coastline. 
  • La Digue – With remarkable beaches and an abundance of pink granite, the serene surroundings of this former coconut plantation is now the ultimate getaway. Although activities are limited, La Digue offers its own charm and tranquillity to enable you to really get away from it all!
